Sandro Martini commented on PIVOT-895:

This issue is superseded now by: PIVOT-998, by updating requirements (and code, thanks to the new syntax and language features) to the current release, Java 8

> Update requirements to Java 7
> -----------------------------
>                 Key: PIVOT-895
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-895
>             Project: Pivot
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Sandro Martini
>            Assignee: Sandro Martini
>              Labels: build, dependencies, java
>             Fix For: 2.1, 2.1.0
> Now that Java 6 is going in Out-of-Life (and support without paying for it) it's time to update dependencies and require Java 7 as a minimum version to build and run Pivot Applications.
> Of course maintenance branch 2.0.x will stay with Java 6 as requirements.
> Some related info:

> And then, verify if disable (not delete for now) existing jobs on Jenkins that builds the trunk with Java 6 ... anyway they could be useful to see if we have some incompatibility with Java 6.
> Then, we can even remove few little tricks due to bugs (not fixed) in Java 6.
